Friday 20th September
The Hadron Colliders
This five-piece band is made up entirely of Sydney-siders, most of them from the Inner West. They are known as an indie rock band, but that is such an umbrella term these days. I would equate them a bit to Nick Cave, at least the singer sounds like him. There is an odd juxtaposition between the upbeat instrumentals and the pretty sorrowful sounding singer, but I think I like it.
Where: Petersham Bowling Club, $8
Friday 27th September
Rocking the Bald Faced Stag
Parramatta Road is continuing to rock, at least for now, and The Bald Faced Stag is delving right into it. Featuring the Naddiks – a Canberra-based band who are making the trip up – supported by three other local bands, this will just be a fun night of Aussie rock. Grab a beer and have a listen.
Where: The Bald Faced Stag, Leichhardt, $12
Saturday & Sunday the 28th/29th September
Another indie band, once again using the term liberally, but these guys are huge and I get why. While not totally my kind of music, it’s got a strong beat for all you dancers, a mellow guitar track to sway to and the singer does everything he has to. Plus I hear they put on incredible live shows, which I always love to hear.
Where: Enmore Theatre, $74.50
